Sometimes a word is just a word, and sometimes, it’s a qualifier that works it’s way into the sentence and then weaves it’s way around our hearts. Squeezing, and tightening, enabling doubt, disabling confidence. I should be able to do all of this, because everyone else does. I should spend every waking minute doing something. We should look for a bigger house. We should be able to afford said house. I should have more x,y, or z by now. I should. I should. But I don’t. I haven’t. I can’t. I shouldn’t even try.
I shouldn’t listen to the word should, or any other word that threatens to pull me away from what He has given to us. Any word that makes me doubt myself, or causes distention and dissatisfaction in my heart or in our home, needs to go. I am enough. I am His. I am blessed.
Okay, I’m really done now 😉
This has been another edition for Five Minute Friday. Haven’t heard of Five Minute Friday’s? It’s my favorite! You can go Here to learn more and get all of the information you need to join in, and make sure to check out Kate’s blog for encouraging posts all week long! My favorite thing about this link up is how one word can be seen in so many different ways, and how reading what you have written can challenge and stretch me, in my faith and in my craft.
Did my post resonate with you at all? I can’t wait to connect and see how this word showed up in your post today.
Thanks for stopping by <3
